I said it multiple times for anyone who would listen, that the Flyers were my pick to finish with the top seed after the round-robin format, and here they are with a chance to clinch top spot in the East with a win here. Tampa Bay has a ton of experience as the team to beat, but you have to winder if the Lightning will be motivated for this one as we’ve seen the Bolts take their foot off of the gas in other spots and sometimes I wonder if the Lightning care at all, as long as they’re in the playoffs that’s good enough and they’ll worry about that when the time comes. Philadelphia wants this badly and also has been playing some of the NHL’s best hockey since the calendar turned and I think the Flyers keep their strong form going with a win here to earn the top seed. Give me Philadelphia and the plus money as my premium pick for this game.
